Streets Ahead!

Mar 19, 2017

It was a much deserved win on the back of consistent form for Streetshavenoname at Warrnambool on Thursday, the honest six-year-old having figured in the placings at five of his previous seven starts!

Sent out favourite in the 1100m contest, Streetshavenoname sat a clear last of five and despite the impost of 60kg was cruising coming to the turn.

Hitting the lead with 50m to go, Streetshavenoname got clear to win by 1 1/4, strong to the line.

"I was afforded the luxury of being able to go when I wanted to," jockey Ryan Maloney said, adding that "I thought he had them covered a long way out."

The stable's Beth Schoen was very happy to see Streetshavenoname break through for his first success since May 2015 - "he had the visors on for the first time last start but he wasn't really suited at the 1300m."

"So this was the first time with visors over a sprinting trip and they did the trick."

A four times winner - and 20 times placed - from 45 starts, Streetshavenoname has amassed over $117,000 for his happy connections.

A son of Street Cry's Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, Streetshavenoname was bred by Newhaven Park Stud and purchased by Robbie with Peter Ford at the 2012 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

He is one of three winners produced by the three times winning Danzero mare Appear from the family of big race winners Drum, Anamato, Dealer Principal, Absolute Champion and Grand Armee.
